Frederick County, Virginia Court Order Book One, 11 Nov. 1743 through 6 Dec, 1744. Charles and Virginia Hamrick. 2007.
The Hamricks have produced a careful transcription of the first legal volume for Frederick County. A full index of names is provided, as well as annotations and a glossary of arcane terms to explain the legal terminology. This is a most important work for those genealogists researching in this frontier area, for it transitions many of the early pioneers out from their parent county records in Orange County, and it places them in space and time in the upper Shenandoah Valley. This will be a reference tool for many generations to come, as the original court hand is difficult to read and the original index with the manuscript copy in the archives is only a partial listing at best.
